Chewy Chocolate Sugar Cookies

July 23, 2013

It is all about the chew for me with cookies. And boy, do these guys have some chew… Not crispy or hard. Not soft or cakey. Just chewy and delightful. Personally what I consider to be the best cookie texture. Although I do have a soft spot for a good tender, crumbly shortbread of sorts. […]

Alton Brown’s “The Chewy”

May 28, 2013

But I swear it’s a totally selfless thing… I’m doing it for you really! I am determined to find the very best chocolate chip cookie recipe out there. I’ve tried: […]

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

April 11, 2013

I’ve started to obsess over bananas. Ever since I stepped out of the realm of banana bread and figured out I could bake things other than quick bread with bananas, I find myself buying bananas simply in hopes that my daughter will ignore them long enough for me to bake with them. It all began […]

Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

March 21, 2013

I made some awesome Chunky Blondie Bars the other day. They had chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, chopped walnuts, and sweetened shredded coconut in them. They were pretty darn awesome. But they left me with half a bag of butterscotch chips without a purpose. I hardly ever bake or do anything with butterscotch chips so I […]

Another phenomenal recipe from my favorite BAKED duo- Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. These Brown Butter Snickerdoodles were actually something that I whipped up over the Holidays back in December. I had SO many recipes going in and out of my kitchen at that time though that I had to stack up a few to […]

Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Crescent Cookies

February 25, 2013

When I first saw these cookies on Pinterest I was so excited. They were labeled “Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookies”. Naturally I thought that they were made from cookie dough- well, that’s not the case. They are actually made from crescent roll dough. In my mind that says “pastry” not “cookie”, but to each their […]

Chocolate Chunkers

February 11, 2013

When I was younger “Raisinets” were always my choice movie theater snack. I mean, how many kids can really say that? I wasn’t a raisin fan in general, but chocolate-covered-raisins? A totally different story. I think that is why I love these cookies so much. The recipe uses a dense, brownie-like dough and stirs in […]

Caramel Coconut Cluster Bars (Homemade Samoa Bars)

February 5, 2013

These… these were fabulous. I’m a little bias though- Samoas are my absolute favorite girl scout cookie. I never could jump on the whole thin mint bandwagon. The Caramel Coconut Cluster Bars were a dream come true to me. This recipe comes from one of my new recipe books- “Baked: Our 10 Favorite Ingredients” by Matt Lewis […]
